the elite, the incumbent industry. he didn't say that. he is a guy who cut the defense budget by 20% in the late 19th at ease in this defense cuts come at this budget cut in the late 1950s were the number one reason we telecom valley. a lot of radio engineers moved out there. there's a beautiful part of the country that maybe didn't have jobs and those people were saying well, we want to say here. they created eventually intel and all the rest of them, right? so we were in a very tenuous moment. with a financial crisis that led to that crisis in auto industry. adding on top of that psychologically the failure of the big three automakers, tough call. by the way, i don't know why anyone in this presidential election mentions that this is a bush program. i have a chapter about left, right forward. we need to at least get history rate. continue to the other, that's not what it is about either. but what would've happened if we would've let it go? would've been all this manufacturing access, contracts out the door. skill itself by factory at 10 activist resources? what would happen if we
then crippled in defense of paris. part of the problem with the dunkirk evacuation by the british was that they left all of their equipment in france. they had no time to take their guns, their tanks, their trucks so that when the british soldiers ended up in southern england after the evacuation, they really only had the uniforms on their backs. >> host: when did that evacuation take place? >> guest: it was late may and finished in -- >> host: late may of 1940. >> guest: -- the first couple days of june. by the 2nd of june, it was virtually over. >> host: so a couple weeks into the invasion of france, it was over? >> guest: the french, a lot of the french military felt that they had lost the battle for their country by this time. it actually went on for another several weeks because the germans had to refit their tanks and align themselves and push down toward paris. they hadn't at this point conquered paris. but the french did the best they could, but at this point the writing was certainly on the wall. france had to drop out of the war, i think it was june 22nd. so the evacuati
and they will be prepared to use military force in defense of those interest. i paraphrase. but we did not have robust military to provide the opportunity. but it was the step the united states took to assume security responsibilities in the gulf. the next that the west took to assume those same duties came into the iran and iraq war beginning in 1980 continuing through the '80s. and through the reagan administration, drawing upon this standard that president carter had before word projected military force in the gulf of in the refi gained of the kuwaiti tankers, putting the u.s. flag on them and using combatants to escort the ships through the gulf putting the u.s. military and harm's way. and finally, 1990 and 91 the united states engaged in desert shield and desert storm after this a dumb and asian of kuwait. after 1991 the united states never left and it has been maintaining order keep being the coal from devolving and insuring free-trade in and out through the gulf with the same missions the british had been doing in the 1800's and 1900's also appeared of american and and british hegemony separat
defense against foreign or domestic threats. secondly the president must be -- expand economic, political and/or social opportunity. this becomes the primary challenge that the nation feels secure from military threats. third, the president must effectively lead congress. since the nation began, there has been a perennial confidence between the executive and legislative branches of government. most presidents will extend their exclusive bands of authority to the utmost. congress, on the other hand generally seeks to limit the president's freedom of action. it is understood, however, that from time to time, setting such limits may be needed. for, the president must avoid a spirit of invincibility, of hubris which might cause the president to lose touch with the political reality. the president must exercise influence over and effectively communicate with the nation, the able to communicate persuasively. the majority of the american people must believe in the president's integrity and sustain a substantial level of pride in the president throughout the eight years in office despite specific
military force in defense of those interests. i paraphrase. of course we didn't have in those 1970 years a robust military that would provide the opportunity to deploy force over those long distances. but nonetheless it was a step that the united states took toward assuming security responsibilities in the gulf. the next step that the u.s. took towards assume something of those same duties the british had previously done, came in the iran-iraq war. it began in 1980 and continued on through most of the 1980s. and during the reagan administration, drawing upon that same standard that president carter had put forward, projected military force into the gulf in the reflagging of kuwaiti tankers, putting u.s.a. flag on them and then using u.s. military combatants to escort the ships through the gulf, putting the u.s. military in harm's way. and then finally, in 1990, and 1991, the united states engaged in operation desert shield and desert storm after saddam's invasion of kuwait. so, after 1991, the united states never left, and it's been maintaining order, it's been keeping the gulf from dein
unconstitutional. the defense of marriage act has been declared unconstitutional by a number of federal courts and appeals from those judgments are now before the supreme court, not brought by the government and obama administration believes that laws unconstitutional but wrought by the house of representatives which has the right to defend an act of congress that the president chooses not to defend. i think it's a sure bet that the court will undertake the defense of marriage act again because there are judgments in the lower court saying it's unconstitutional. so again, that is the agenda setting function and what we are going to be hearing about, debating and talking about and ultimately getting a decision. it really lies in the power of the court and a very major and i said under appreciated power. one question that it raises really is how did the justices know what's important? how do they know what they should be deciding? obviously when people bring their appeals to the spin court they lay out the case and the format of one of these petitions question presents what it is they want the c
. they tended to be oriented around issues of strong national defense of an opposition to the union and the defense of the free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt in the south and the southwest that we see the rise by the 1970's to talk about is the religious right's involved in the political process in the new and important ways. so he was at the forefront of all of those issues and his own politics national defence, a staunch anti-communist that set an important goal in the right wing anticommunist politics in the 1960's one of the things that led the party is in 1964. even the early in his career he was a staunch advocate of the unions in south carolina back in the 30's and 40's but he switches in the 50's and 60's and becomes a die-hard supporters of business against labor. and then he also is an important role in a conservative evangelical politics. he joins the board of bob jones university of 1950 to win the votes in the country and solve carolina. bob jones just moved to the country come just moved to the university and he needed votes in the country in south
donations to the defense, whatever it was, that is what kept me going. that is what i had faith and belief in in the outside world, people who were doing whatever they could. that is the reason that i thought i wouldn't be executed. >> did they ever show in the prison? >> never. i tried to watch it one time. the attorney i had got a court order from the judge she said this is relative to the case said he should see this. so they set up a tv, i made it through maybe 15 minutes of it and i couldn't take any more. i never stand where they had such a huge impact on people because for me watching it again it was like being there in the courtroom again, and it's so overwhelming that you don't know. you just feel something huge. it articulates how it makes you feel what it does to you so i couldn't help but i didn't watch the second 1i watched the third one just because we went to the premiere in new york but i honestly don't remember most of it because it happened right when i'd just gotten out of privilege and i was in a really deep state of shock and i don't remember a lot of what happened in
of the u.s. defense intelligence agency has said that information and intelligence are the fire and maneuver of the 21st century, and those of you who are familiar with war fighting methods in iraq and afghanistan know how important this has become, and i'll talk more about that as i go along, but i want to read you about a passage about a raid in iraq called the sinjar raid where special operatives seized the computer equivalent of the roladex. it tracked 500 al-qaeda suicide bombers or terrorists who had filtered into iraq through syria, and the possession of this data base of 5 # 00 individuals who were recruitedded to blow themselves up or arrange for terrorist attacks was critical in the effort to take al-qaeda apart inside of iraq, and i'll read you what i wrote here in the prologue. the motherload of documents seized in what has become known as the sinjar raid illustrated the point nicely. the point made by lieutenant general flynn. in the six years after the 9/11 attacks, the u.s. military and intelligence communities representing a wide variety of agencies, large and sm

[applause] >> thank you. >> this is a little bit politically incorrect, but i was wondering about the actions of sheridan and what are considered war crimes now. >> war crimes? well, certainly what they did on the great plains would be war crimes. what they did in georgia in the shenandoah valley, i'm not so sure. they tried to save civilian lives. the purpose was to destroy resources and their ability to wage war. i think that would be arguable. but certainly a very good point.

issues. he had national defense, he played an important role in right-wing anti-communist popular politics and the late 50s and early 60s, this is one of the things that led him to switch parties, he opposed labor unions. he switches in the 50s and 60s, and by 1970, there were some diehard supporters of this. and there was also an important role in conservative and evangelical policy. he joins the board of bob jones university and he does it to win votes. bob jones had just moved his university. and thurman needed those votes. he lost in 1958 to the senate. that began a long relationship with a conservative and fundamentalist and evangelical persons who are looking to get involved in the process. we need to understand the racial politics in the midst of these conservative issues that he was very involved with. to see how they intersect with one another. i think in doing so, it gives us a history of what it looks like and helps us rethink not only what was going on in the south, but what was going on in the national and conservative political realm as well. the history of modern co
they reacted with a very ably defended themselves against overwhelming numbers in the skillful defense all the way through virginia so there would be more of a balanced approach. >> i was wondering if sheridan and sherman engaged in what they consider the war crime? >> certainly what they did on the great plains would be war crimes but they did in georgia and the shenandoah valley because they tried to scare pecos barras civilian lives. the purpose was to destroy the southern resources and their ability to wage the war. so i think that would be arguable but a great point, yes.

donations to the defense fund, whatever it was, that's what kept me going. that's what i had faith in, that's what i had belief in, the outside world, people who were doing whatever they could. that's the reason i thought i wouldn't be executed. >> did the paradise lost movie ever show in the prison? >> never. i tried to watch it one time. um, the attorney i had got a court order from the judge, he said, well, this is relevant to the case, so he should see this. so they set up a tv, they put me in a cell with a tv, they started playing it, i made it through maybe 15 minutes of it, and i couldn't take any more. i understand why they had such a huge impact on people, because for me watching it again, the closest thing i could compare it to was when you hear vietnam vets talk about having flashbacks? that's what it was like, it was like being there in the courtroom again, and it's so overwhelming that you don't know, you just feel something huge, but you don't know if you should be laughing or crying. you're just -- i don't think there's even any words in the english language to articulate how
a conversation with -- someone from the financial industry who was trying to make a defense about things like carried interest, which isn't even invested income but gets taxed as if it was at 15%. there's a lot of effort put in and with uncertain return, and you need to -- and my -- i couldn't help. you know what else involved a lot of work with no return? writing books. i don't get that tax break, you don't get the tax break. there we are. >> just to clarify, this question of carried interest, when a fund, private equity heavenly fund, earns money from their customers, they earn a fee. that is their income. they're allowed to defer that. you can keep it invested in your business, and at the end, on any gain you capital gains, and now they transferred the income into capital gainses, chit is not. at it legalized fraud.

[laughter] it was more the he didn't want washington controlling. that there was that individualism, but individualism as a community and to -- and so he wanted the control to be through him and then, you know, down through, you know, the control. and i think you're right. it was more an tip think toward secular government particularly from washington than really big government. >> doctor maxwell you'll have to speak lout -- loudly there's not a mic down here. they're bringing it. wait just a moment.

, commerce, affluence, and to let them come to the aged decadence. this can be identified by defensiveness, pessimism, materialism, frivolity, the welfare state, the dissolution of the armed forces, weakening of religion, and the attempt to curry favor in the world. he also wrote a companion s.a. in which she writes that everyone of us contributes to the recovery of our country by working hard or fostering a sense of comradeship and that only a revival of spiritual devotion can inspire selfless service, and each of us can contribute by leading moral and dedicated lives and by speaking and writing in that sense. if we have no leaders we must go it alone. in the chicago public schools it's not quite the time. perhaps that time is not quite yet, but it's evident that the time for sacrifice for the sake of the country and the judeo-christian values is near. the left insistence regarding abortion, birth control, sex education, spiritual as asian, and their rights. looking at these we are reminded of the first visible signals are often mistaken for force. the most apparent. the smoke which we se
here in the front. >> i selected today 14 samples on my ipaq. my first question to mary and his defense just reading the sample is coming deep reading of the sample would be enough? i would like to argue most of the books are yes. i think we will change how we write books. i think it was also surprising to me that we talked about deep reading or different kinds of brains for reading. the completely not mentioning to me when talking about the writing experience. i think many of us because of digital are becoming deep writers and they think as a result, we are deeply reading and a whole new way when writing is completely interconnected and i wonder if there's some psychology that relate to that in setting that as well. >> i truly don't know, but i will nevertheless speak.
